Thanks for the feedback. Have looked at the MyAntennas EFHW 8010 model. It's around 130 feet long. Might work on a long and narrow piece of property.
Do like to run SSB now and then for QPs and such.

I live in an HOA controlled neighbourhood. I run a 135 ft end fed random with 2, 15-foot counterpoise wires. It is runup through a stand-off from my chimney at about 20 feet down to my 10-foot high fence, and around the fence line of the property. It is invisible from the street, and seems to work well for PSK, FT8, VARA HF, and ARDOP from 80 through 6 M. It is less effective for SSB, as it is very noisy, and, strangely enough, I get almost no NVIS off of it. I do have some Common Mode issues on 80M with it that I am currently (pun intended) chasing.
